WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - At this hour, hundreds of people from West Michigan are rallying for immigration reform in Washington, D.C.
They're rallying outside the capitol as Congress works on a bill that would put 11 million immigrants in the United States illegally on a path to citizenship.
Thousands of people from more than 30 states are participating.
In addition to establishing a path to citizenship, the bill being crafted by Senators from both parties would secure the border and establish new visa programs for high- and low-skilled foreign workers.
